Jimmy Graham appeals arbitrator's ruling
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints' Jimmy Graham appealed an arbitrator's ruling declaring him a tight end and not a receiver, reports NFL Network. The ruling could cost Graham $5 million this year if he and the team don't reach a longterm contract agreement.

Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET is the deadline for the sides to reach agreement. Otherwise, if Graham loses the appeal, he'd have to play 2014 under the $7 million tight end franchise tag or sit out.

Teammate: Bitterness won't linger from Jimmy Graham standoff
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints tight end Benjamin Watson told ESPN that the the team's arbitration fight with Jimmy Graham over whether he's a receiver or a tight end won't have a longterm detrimental effect. Watson is hopeful the sides will reach a multiyear contract agreement by Tuesday's deadline.

"I’m very confident that it’ll be resolved the right way and guys can move forward," Watson said. "Obviously it’s always tough when you go through litigation with somebody, and it can probably get heated. And I’m sure there are emotions on both sides. But that is the business side of the game. 

"And it’s unfortunate that it came to that and that it was so public. But I really think -- I know, I don’t think -- I know that Jimmy loves New Orleans and I know that he loves our team and the organization and he loves playing here. And we love him, everybody wants him here, coaches included. So when it comes down to contract situations, that’s just a necessary evil ... not even evil, but just a necessary progression of getting a player here."
